418-386 Invitation to work (3)

"Too soon, man! Couldn't you have waited till I was eating meat?
You couldn't wait for me to eat the meat?" "This is no time for that, you idiot!

 Silly, this is not the time to be talking like that!" Silas slaps his forehead in frustration, and I stab him in the back and run towards it.

 In the event that you've got a lot of money, you'll be able to take a look at the web site for more information.

What the hell is that? ......
"I don't know. But it's pretty long.

 The water in the river was clean, but the mud on the bottom of the river was muddy due to the violent Petosi, so I couldn't see it clearly.

 However, the length of the shadow alone is more than ten meters.

It's not important. It'll break the tree!
Oh, yeah, that's right!

 Toya and Silas, wearing thick leather gloves, immediately grabbed the wire and began to pull, but the wire remained taut and barely moved.

 We hurriedly joined them, but it was still very heavy.

 It's not that it doesn't move at all, but even if we pull a little to give it some room, it will be pulled back immediately.

Are the wires okay?
It should be fine, right? I ordered a pretty good one, you know. Shiro iron.

 Silas replied to my question, but his expression was not very confident. I think he's getting a little anxious himself.

 Because of the wire, he should be able to pull pretty hard, but we're all adventurers.
 Even Mitya, the youngest of us, has the physical strength of a grown man.
 Cyrus, Toya, and the rest of us can't even compare to that.

 With six such people pulling with all their might, the force on the wire must be considerable. At a low estimate, it is probably in the order of tons. I wonder if this thin wire can support them.

"Hey, Nao. You can use magic, right? Can't you do something?

"Don't be absurd! There's no such thing as convenient magic!

 When you're underwater, fire and wind magic can't reach the enemy.
 Light is out of the question because it's basically not suitable for attacking.

 If it's just a simple weight, you can use space-time magic's Light Weight, but considering the opponent's magic resistance and swimming ability, it won't matter much if it's a little lighter.

 As for water magic, level 10 Tide might be effective, but of course I can't use it.

 Earth magic has substance, so it can reach the water, but it may or may not do any damage.

 Considering the buoyancy of the water, it is unlikely to be effective to send a rock that can hold up to a hundred pounds.

 It would be better if there was a lightning spell, but I don't have such a grimoire, and I have never tried it.

 I've been training to specialize in the magic I'm good at, but if this is the case, should I have tried practicing? I don't know if I can use it.

d*mn it. Should I have put poison in the bait?

 Silas blurted this out, but Mitya immediately complained.

If you use poison, they won't be able to eat it!
"Don't worry, Mitya, you can eat it! We will, though!
Who knew? You're not going to get eaten!

 But if he hadn't tied the wire tightly to the tree, he would have been dragged into the river and Freddy would have been right.

What do we do now? If we keep going like this, will it weaken?
"It's pretty hard! Can't we just take our hands off it and leave it?
If I let go, they'll know! Stay strong!

 What Silas is referring to here is the one where the hook comes off.

 In fishing, it is important to hook the hook in time with the bite, control the rod and reel, and keep the line loose.

 The same is true for fishing, although the size of the fish varies a little.
 --Well, there was no time to think about tactics, we were all just pulling.

 I was struggling with the wire for a while, trying to figure out what to do, but no good ideas came to mind.

 Aside from the physical Toya and Silas, the other four, including myself, were beginning to show signs of fatigue, but there was no change in the situation.

 If we continue like this, we'll never get anywhere.
 It seemed that we weren't the only ones who thought so.
 The wire that we had been pulling on suddenly loosened.
 For a moment, we thought the needle had come loose.
 The next moment, a huge creature appeared as if jumping out of the river.

It's huge.
It's thick. ......
It's black and shiny.

 It was such a creature that slammed its body into the riverbank, making the earth shake.

 A long, black, slender, wispy fish with a girth of over a meter in diameter and a length of well over ten meters. From its mouth extends the wire that we are pulling.

 To put it simply, the Petosy was a giant eel.

 We were lucky that we were far enough away from the river, but if we had gotten too close, we would have been eaten, no joke.

 It was no wonder that Freddy backed away as if he was scared of such a thing crawling toward us, twisting its body.

"What the hell is that?

"Probably a monster eel. It's probably a monster eel, but it's usually no more than 30 centimeters in diameter. ......

 I've never seen such a creature before, but Cyrus seemed to have an idea of what it was and frowned suspiciously as he picked up his sword.

I'm not sure what to make of it. I'm not sure what to do.
It can swallow a human being whole!" "Hmm, is that a Mega Monster Eel?
"No, Toya. No, Toya. If there's a Giga Monster, we'll be in trouble.

 You shouldn't say anything ominous.
 It'll set a flag.

I've been based around here a long time and I've never seen anything like this. I think it's a special species.

I'll go with Petosey.

I can't stand it when there's more than one of these things. I've never seen anything like it before.

I'm more of a lump, not a lump.


 The voices overlapped, unintentionally.

 Silas, who was about to step forward, nearly snapped his knees for a moment, but quickly regained his footing and started running, carrying his sword.

I don't care either way! I won't be able to crawl any time soon!

 The Petoshee approached us, pulled by the wires we were holding.
 Silas swung his sword at the Petossi's neck.


 If I had to put it into words, I'd say "nyurunn".
 Silas's sword slid across the surface of the Petoshee and knocked it to the ground.
 The slipperiness of the eel is unlike any other eel I know.
 In other words, it's slippery like a marsh eel.

 In addition, the mucus secreted from the surface is currently increasing, turning the surrounding area into a sludge as the petticoat undulates.

 I'm not sure what to make of it, but I'm sure it's a good idea.


 Cyrus avoided it, but the mucus on the ground caught his feet and he lost his stance.
 Petosy's mouth closed in on him.

 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what's going on in your life.

No! But please be careful. There's a lot of mucus in the area.
Shit! Everywhere Petosey moves, it slides! Freddy, can you aim for the eyes?
Yes, sir!
Me, too!

 As soon as Freddie thrusts his knife into Petosy's right eye, Mitya's knife slices through his left eye.

 I'm not sure what to do, but I'm going to do it.

 Toya followed up, but her attack was almost the same as Cyrus'.
 It only slightly cut the surface, but it was far from damaging.

Even if I participate in this, it won't have much effect.
Not even Silas can do that.

 I'm sorry to say it, but Mary's attack is like a degraded version of Cyrus'.

 If his attack is ineffective, then the result would be the same if Mary tried the same thing.

"Mary, hold the wire. No need to push, but if you can support her like you did before, please do.

 Perhaps because they were out of the river, Mary was able to move Petosy's head with only one person pulling on it.

 Even if you have to interfere a little, it will be worth it.

I understand.

 Now, what should I do?
